Rough Crafts Gives Ducati’s Hypermotard A Carbon Fiber Tracker Treatment

Ever since its release in 2007, Ducati’s Hypermotard has been widely considered one of the most grin-inducing turn-key hooligan machines that money can buy. With an overall lightweight package and gobs of torque, the Hypermotard is the type of machine that incites license-jeopardizing behavior. Recognizing the ample merits of the Motard’s ridiculous performance prowess, Winston Yeh of Rough Crafts recently opted to tackle the motocross-inspired, Terblanche-designed two-wheeler for his latest bespoke creation, dubbed the ‘Igneous Ripper.’

Yeh started by chucking out the entirety of the Motard’s bodywork to make room for new carbon fiber pieces. The tail section is actually a BOTT (Buell) XR1 unit, while the one-off tank — which is done in Rough Craft’s signature, knee-notched style — front number plate, and radiator shrouds were all penned to match the BOTT tail. Now riding on a set of 17” BST Rapid TEK carbon rims wrapped in sticky Pirelli superbike rubber, the Duck-based tracker is fitted with top-shelf Beringer brakes, CNC Racing bars, Rizoma signals, Koso headlights, a quick-shifter, Ducabike clutch cover, a tracker-style, right-hand-mount full titanium, sectioned S1 exhaust from SC-Project, an Ohlins FGRT207 fork slotted in CNC-machined triples, Ohlins steering damper, and a custom mono-shocked made by the Swedish outfit specially for this project.
